kitchen textiles

 Our kitchen textiles are sourced from two different artisanal groups in Guatemala. Manos Cruceñas, in Santa Cruz La Laguna, handmakes kitchen towels and napkins using upcycled fabric (tela) woven from traditional jaspe (haspeh) threads. The tela is traditionally used for women's skirts in Mayan communities in Guatemala. 

The jaspe designs are colorful, unique and ever-changing and the two-directional weave makes them extremely strong and durable. All of our jaspe products are machine washable and dryer safe. 

We also have hand towels handwoven by our partner artisans in San Juan La Laguna. Each towel is made using all natural fibers and plant based dyes. These towels are soft and very absorbent and look fantastic in any kitchen or bath. 

All ixöq products are ethically made, sustainable sourced and follow fair trade standards. We work directly with our partner artisans on each order and guarantee we pay a fair wage. We honor traditional craft while creating contemporary and useful products.
